Child Support Scheme for timing and related matters in relation to ending liability in existing cases

Date published: 22 December 2017

The new child maintenance rules have now been introduced for all new applications since November 2013. All child maintenance cases are to be governed by the new rules. This will be achieved by ending liability for cases on the 1993 and 2003 schemes and inviting interested parties to consider making their own family-based arrangements or  to apply to the new child maintenance scheme. The ending liability scheme sets out the general principles in relation to how and in which order cases will be selected to bring an existing case to an end and provides information for those who wish to apply to the new child maintenance scheme.
